Finlabs is designed to launch transformative products to Bank of the West's customers.
During a 4 month pilot, you will partner with business lines to solve a defined customer need. You gain direct touch to Bank of the West customers locally, with an open door to the rest of the world via BNP Paribas.
Bank of the West is a regional bank in a top global bank. It is headquartered in San Francisco, and its parent company, BNP Paribas is the #1 bank in Europe with presence in 74 countries.
Coming from both the startup and banking worlds in Silicon Valley and Europe, we know that working with banks can be painful. Our team of entrepreneurs in Paris set out to solve this problem 2 years ago with L'Atelier Boost Programs. The dream: creating corporate partnerships they wished were available while building their own companies.
